Parents Of Addicted Loved Ones Will Meet Dec. 6

Last updated on Thursday, December 1, 2016

(BEDFORD) - David Norris, director of Heaven Nevaeh Healing Center, is now providing PAL sessions on Tuesdays from 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m.

PAL is the acronym for Parents of Addicted Loved Ones, a group dedicated to teaching proven strategies for helping loved ones achieve permanent recovery from addiction.

The first PAL session is set for December 6, from 6:30-8 p.m. at 1133 R St.

Loved ones of an addicted child, spouse or relative can lend support to and receive support from others facing similar challenges.

Those attending must be 18 or older. There is no need to register for the program.

PAL was founded in 2006 by Michael Speakman while working as an in-patient substance abuse counselor in Arizona. As the number of meetings spread due to growing demand, volunteer facilitators were trained and new meetings opened across the Phoenix metropolitan area. In 2015, PAL was incorporated as a Christian run non-profit and falls under a 501(c)(3) for charitable donations as a partner with another Christian organization, Partners In Action.

The group members meets to educate, support and help each other with issues arising from loving someone with an addiction.

Each PAL group is facilitated by a peer, someone walking the same path. While the focus is on parents with an addicted child, all family member and friends are welcome to attend.

Norris says the guiding principles of PAL are confidentiality, respect, acceptance and support.
